TABLE TOPPERS

Dundee United celebrate their victory at Pittodrie, which puts them top of the Scottish Premiership.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"United capitalised on a mistake and from then on they played with a bit of intelligence. Although we had the majority of the play in the second half, they looked dangerous on the break.."

The top flight resumes on Wednesday evening with a full round of fixtures, including champions Celtic's first league match against St Johnstone in Perth and Partick Thistle's opening game of the season against Ross County in Glasgow.

It's been mainly away wins on the first weekend of the Premiership season with Inverness triumphing at Hamilton yesterday and Dundee United and St Johnstone both picking up three points on the road today.

BBC

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara

"I thought, to a man, we were very good today. Defensively, as a unit, we were outstanding. It's a great start for us, that's all it is."

FULL-TIME

Aberdeen 0-3 Dundee United

Dundee United go top of the Scottish Premiership with a convincing victory at Pittodrie.

FULL-TIME

Ross County 1-2 St Johnstone

St Johnstone open their Scottish Premiership season with a hard-fought away victory over Ross County.

GOAL

Aberdeen 0-3 Dundee United (Erskine)

Well, that's that. Chris Erskine rolls the ball home to claim United's third of the day.

Closing Stages

Ross County 1-2 St Johnstone

Melvin de Leeuw's shot is saved by St Johnstone goalkeeper Alan Mannus.

Former United forward David Goodwillie heads wide with the goal at his mercy, much to Aberdeen's disappointment.

INJURY TIME

Aberdeen 0-2 Dundee United

Three minutes of stoppage time at Pittodrie.

A series of set pieces in the St Johnstone half as Ross County try to force a leveller.

Niall McGinn's half-volley from a tight angle does not trouble Dundee United goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak.

PENALTY APPEAL

Aberdeen 0-2 Dundee United

Dundee United defender Callum Morris appears to handle the ball in the box but referee Willie Collum waves play on.

Aberdeen's frustrations are summed up as Peter Pawlett works himself into a good position and delivers a decent ball but there is no-one there to attack it.

Craig Paterson

BBC Radio SCotland pundit

"It's just been a really, really flat day for Aberdeen."

Ross County 1-2 St Johnstone

Quite a few stoppages in Dingwall as both sides make changes. St Johnstone's first-half scorer Michael O'Halloran tries to add to his earlier strike but fires over.
